And the way isn't always along a road. We have a pretty major waterway or two down here in Bavaria. You might have heard of the Danube? And how about the Main? No, I don't mean the "most important." I mean the Main River.
The Main flows through Upper Franconia (more on that region in a few days), and the Danube through Bavaria's center. We are proud of these rivers, and their storied (and "songed") qualities through the ages.
The Danube, in particular, covers a whole lot of territory (ten different countries at this count), and has figured in historical borders and skirmishes since at least the Roman Empire. It begins in the depths of the Black Forest, and empties into the Black Sea. Black to black, the river is big
Bavaria big (and even bigger than that).
